UCLA Live’s planned celebration of the venerable jazz and new classical label ECM has been canceled.
“The vision didn’t match the resources,” a UCLA Live spokeswoman said.
Titled the Elective Affinities Festival, schedule included more than a dozen concerts featuring ECM artists such as Jan Garbarek and the Hilliard Ensemble and the Tomasz Stanko Quartet. Manfred Eicher, who founded ECM 35 years ago, was slated to be the UCLA Live artist in residence.
The one concert that remains on the UCLA Live slate is the Keith Jarrett Trio at Royce Hall on March 12. Other shows may still take place.
